PATSCAN CMR is a first-in-class covert primary radar screening device and software solution for the detection of on-body concealed weapons at key access points of weapons-restricted buildings and facilities. PATSCAN CMR is an easily concealed, cost-effective and non-invasive full body scanning technology that is proven, practical and safe.

Current Technology Fails For Many Reasons

Key Features

  • Low-power impulse radar system for the stand-off detection of on-body concealed weapons.
  • System is compact and portable.
  • Frequency range: from 500 MHz to 5 GHz (microwave freq. range).
  • System is trained to recognize various weapons before deployment.
  • System is trained to recognize non-threat targets (i.e. unarmed civilians) before deployment.
  • System continues to “learn” after deployment and adapts to specific environment.
  • Network capability increases coverage dramatically as multiple units can act in tandem.

Licensing Rights

Seven years in development. Patriot One holds an agreement to develop, license, manufacture and market the product worldwide.

Intellectual Property

Primary patents are maintained and held by McMaster University which will vigorously defend their patent filings against all infringements or challenges.

Patriot One Technologies has the exclusive worldwide rights to commercialize the McMaster University technology for the detection of concealed weapons.  The system is patent pending on four continents, including: North America, Europe, Australia, and Asia. Patriot One Technologies works closely with McMaster to develop the intellectual property to commercial standards.

Under the patent filing process, examiners review patent applications against previous or otherwise related filings. This process takes time, particularly when multiple geographical regions are concerned.  In all technology patent searches, extensive study is required to identify instances where patent applications may appear to follow similar technological approaches. Ultimately there are often significant differences in how the processes work which are crucial to IP protection.  Patriot One Technologies has adopted an LTR (Late Time Response) radar target identification approach for the application of the licensed McMaster University’s patents, which posits that there are uniquely inherent methods proposed for the detection of concealed threats that identifies and specifies allowances for effective operation.

Patriot One Technologies is not solely reliant on the McMaster patents and has determined to file additional patents as ongoing advances in proprietary development continue to improve threat detection methods, procedures and technologies.

PATSCAN Deterrence Proposition

Patriot One Technologies developed the Cognitive Microwave Radar (CMR) concealed weapons detection system as an effective tool to combat active shooter threats before they occur. Owners or operators of private/public facilities can plan to prominently post anti-weapons policies with compliance assured. The Company’s motto Deter, Detect and Defend is based on the belief that widespread use of its technology will act as an effective deterrent, thereby diminishing the epidemic phenomena of active shooters around the world.


A first-in-class covert primary screening system for the detection of on-body concealed weapons at access points of weapons-restricted buildings and facilities. PATSCAN CMR is an easily concealed, cost-effective and non-invasive full body scanning technology that is proven, practical and safe.

Concealed Weapons Detection

PATSCAN CMR is the world’s most advanced technology for covert screening and detection of concealed weapons. The system identifies threats by database comparison of known weapons profiles, and by detection of concealed irregular object mass.

Unlike millimeter wave units in use currently, the PATSCAN CMR can operate autonomously, is affordable, easily concealed, and utilizes a single scan for detection as compared to the numerous scans required by large, expensive and manned static installations.

Operational Benefits

PATSCAN CMR screens individuals in real time as they interact with the detection field at key access points. Installation can be covert or overt from multiple directions – subject to need and structural considerations. Eliminates institutional metal detector style look and feel.

Patriot One’s patent pending Cognitive Microwave Radar (CMR) employs a network-wide ability to “learn” and adapt to new threats as “signature” patterns are identified. Pattern updates are transmitted network-wide offering an ever increasing signature library.

Operational Efficiency

PATSCAN CMR offers performance accuracy which significantly reduces personnel needs required for bag checks and secondary screening as security is primarily deployed against identified threats only.

PATSCAN CMR provides stand-off capability and guidelines to increase first responder reaction times through immediate action integrated directly to access controls. Users manage activities from a desktop computer, mobile application, or as a dedicated alarm for localized alerts.

Operational Environment

Designed for use in any public or private facility to effectively manage and restrict weapons access.

Operational Features

  • Small enough for covert installations.
  • Images of the target NOT generated; absolutely no privacy concerns.
  • No subject compliance required.
  • Secured locations inconspicuous – not institutional.
  • Time consuming scans not required.
  • Compact and lower cost than millimeter-wave units.
  • Cost allows for multiple networked units.
  • Weapon profiles updated network-wide regularly.
  • Real-time and entirely computer-based. Human operators NOT required.
  • Early detection reduces inspection team size and buys first responders critical intervention time.
  • System “learns” and continuously perfects its detection ability.
  • Radar frequencies are aligned with international regulations for safe use of microwave bandwidths.
